New here & happy to have found a forum. I have had so many questions relating to my upcoming road trip & have not had much luck getting answers.
I am leaving in less then a month for my "Epic American Roadtrip". With me will be my two dear friends and each of our three children. This is a 7 week long adventure that I have planned out to a fare-thee-well. I definitely don't want to be so structured that we miss things due to lack of spontaneity but the truth is you can't be to spontaneous with 3 moms & 9 children - finding lodging for 7 weeks can't be left up to chance!
So I think I have provided a structure that lets us relax & be confident in the important details but gives us freedom to do spur of the moment activities.
We will be spending about half our time on the East Coast. Staying anywhere from 2 - 5 nights in or most desired locations. Our first long stop on East Coast Is P.E.I.
Here is my first question...Passports: We have gotten 2 different stories & guidelines for children traveling with one parent.
1. We need notarized letter from other parent saying we have permission to travel.
2. We need notarized letter plus copy of other parents passport? ( When I decided to do this my husband didn't get passport as he wasn't going) If this is the case we will need to expedite his as we just heard this new info.
When in Hudson River Valley is it practical to think we can take a train to Penn Station do a city tour and head back on train to Hudson? I know I can schedule this but just wonder if this really works? Children are 10-14
When in Williamsburg is it feasible to due PA activities as a day drive? We are in Williamsburg for a week and would like to use it as a hub and travel out from there.
I know I am asking a lot as a newcomer so thank you, thank you, thank you, in advance.
